6:05 am
globalization. so i think it's going to be very interesting to see whether he just gives a sermon to keep with that analogy for a moment and whether he's really willing to listen to others as well. so i'm delighted he's come, i think he's going to be well received whether a couple of people walk out or not, they want united states engagement. the world does and hopefully he's also going to listen to some of the messages that they've impart today him during the past day or so. maria: what do you think méxico is thinking, the u.s. is about to get real deep in terms of nafta renegotiations, the president said, look, we just want fair trade as a former un ambassador to méxico, what's your take on what we might see in terms of nafta? >> i think nafta is important greet, $50 billion worth of chain, supply chains between u.s. and méxico creates lots of jobs. i think mr. trump indicated that
6:06 am
he wants to reduce the deficit in trade between the two countries, ongoing negotiations going on right now in montreal between the various delegations. i think the main thing he wants to get is higher north american and possibly u.s.-content requirements for automobiles which are the single biggest, the deficit between ourselves and méxico is attributed principally and something has to happen in that area. apparently the canadians have put a proposal on the table. they haven't revealed it publicly but it's apparently something above the current 62% north american requirement for vehicles built in the free trade area. maria: i see. does he have a point in free trade deals, it feels like america is at disadvantage? >> he does and he doesn't. we may not always got tennessee best advantage possible, on the other hand, i think he's not right or those who think that
6:07 am
globalization has not been in our interest, i don't believe are correct. we have to find some balance, i think what he's done, i think what he's done as new sheriff in town, so to speak, we are back here, the united states, and we are more are prepare today use the great economic leverage that we have in trade negotiations than we may have year to forward. maria: fox news learned that the president did tell top officials that he wanted to fire special counsel robert mueller, this was past june, was talked out of it by the white house council don. [inaudible] >> fire robert mueller? >> fake news, typical new york times, fake story. [laughter] maria: wow, fake news he called it. what do you think about that? >> well, first of all, this is a matter under investigation and i think we are going to have to wait to what mr. mueller comes
6:08 am
up with, i believe his attitude ever since magan has become white house council he's more dispose today cooperate. i don't think he will fire anybody at this particular moment. i think he's willing to let things play out. maria: as former national intelligence director under bush 43, i know you are very much a believer in the rule of law and you want to be able to trust national security agencies, you want to trust the fbi, the cia and even the irs by the way, we have new text messages that were revealed yesterday and they show that fbi officials peter strzok and lisa page who were a couple, they were concerned about being too tough on hillary clinton during the agency's investigation into her e-mail server. page basically said to stroz, don't forget, she could be our next president and you don't want to be too tough on her, does that show bias in your view? >> that's inappropriate authorization of the law enforcement process and so i
6:09 am
think if that report is true then i think that's been -- that's a real error on their part, error of judgment and ought to be looking into and i assume that mr. mueller will take a look at it as well. maria: i know this wasn't under mueller's mandate, the text messages are coming out that not only did they have this incredible bias against trump by they were also involved in the mueller investigation and they basically we wanted to destroy evidence. >> right, i meant in the sense that if there is this kind of bias it might mean there was also a bias in the other direction of wanting to give the president a harder time. maria: really fascinating stuff. ambassador, great to see you. >> thank you. maria: thank you so much for joining us. we want to take a break. when we come back, tragedy in south korea as fire rips through emergency hospital room, dozens hurt, we will have all of the details when we come right back, we are rounding out busy earning season, the company reportedly

6:19 am
maria: coming to you live this week in davos switzerland, business leaders gathered for the world economic forum and one of the hot topic this is year the booming u.s. economy. i spoke with the black stone group chairman and ceo and cofounder steven to talk about the global impact of president trump's tax overhaul. >> starting in the united states i think the tax changes, tax bill are going to be quite positive, you know, first you've got lowered tax rates and highly competitive around the world for the first time in a very long time. you've got expensing of capitall one 00%, so if you're in any
6:20 am
kind of business that needs equipment, u.s. is going to be a great place to be located, you've got the potential to return $2 trillion of money into the united states from abroad, just from u.s.-controlled companies and that all adds up to something pretty good and in addition, i think, what's going to happen is that companies outside the united states are now recognizing that the u.s. competitive posture has changed quite dramatically and we are going to be seeing unanticipated foreign investment into the united states because we will be the best developed market in the world. so altogether is a pretty positive story. maria: this is a very important point, actually, have you seen changed as a result of policies from investors across the world? >> yes, it's anecdotal which is
6:21 am
how you pick things up because everybody has to make plans but what people say when you talk about is, jeez, something important is happening in your country, i've got to do more there, you are going to grow faster, you're deregulating, we should be doing that in our countries and, you know, it's a very positive buzz. maria: a lot of people were questioning the carried interest situation. i want you to make the case, obviously, you're getting a benefit because of the carried interest that it's still there. this loop hole, the decision says we left it in there and we we want to discourage, they said they were doing away with all of the deductions? >> well, it's only been a hundred years of loophole. i don't know how you define -- it's capital gain's treatment and has been changed under the current tax law and, you know,
6:22 am
what they've done is they moved it from a normal one-year capital gain to three. what happens is if you have any capital gain within the three-year window it's treated as ordinary income, so this effects basically, well, pretty much every hedge fund and denies them carried interest -- no, they tend never to invest in anything longer than three years, so it knocks them out pretty much and also affects firms like ourselves when we sell something before 3 years which we do a certain percentage of the time, is it's not like thing were left exactly the way they were, long discussion and argument as to why this is a capital gain and one of the reasons is that, you know, you have to invest money to get it, if it's paid out and the fund
6:23 am
that you've you've got the profit in doesn't meet certain returns, you have to pay it back. maria: which is why i ask you to make the case because i'm hearing the same thing. not to be underestimated is the rollback of regulation, this has had ul economic growth and unleashing animal spirits, yes? >> absolutely yes and, you know, this is one you can see really easily. there was really sort of a regulatory suppression of the u.s. economy, you know, part because of the financial crisis and its aftermath in part because usually systems tend to overshoot and we probably overshot in a whole variety of areas over the previous eight years and, you know, there was a lot of rhetoric that was very negative to the business community and lack of understanding, i think, what powered an economy and this type
6:24 am
of rollback which isn't everywhere, it's not irresponsible in total is really creating, you know, enormous energy and enthusiasm and is -- is actually an example to people around the world of how you get an economy going. it was no accident that the stock market started going up the day after the election and not because anything was accomplished that day, it's because the theory of the case, the plan to -- to do much more deregulation than increased regulation as well as reduce taxes bring money back from abroad. this actually is quite sound, i think it's difficult to really be thoughtful and be against this in concept. how things work out, practically
6:25 am
some things work terrifically well and some don't, but in total, this is a very good strategy and the fact that markets have embraced this means that politically people who don't think this is a good idea are being outvoted if that means anything, you know, big-time by the business community and it's not just the u.s. business community, markets are global, particularly the u.s. markets and the global world is saying in terms of checking right track, wrong track, this is right track. maria: look around the world for us, where do you see the big opportunities right now? >> well, u.s. is a good opportunity, europe has been very strong surprisingly. people had given up on europe. we started really investing heavily in europe a few years ago, so the break-up in bre pit
6:26 am
-- brexit has led to recommitment to europe and the biggest problem we found when we were investing in europe why it was so appealing was that the europeans had lost confidence in europe. maria: you have done so much in china, do you still see opportunity from an investment standpoint in china? >> you have to be selective in terms of what you do in china, they'll probably be a business that grows up there over some of their distressed loans because there are a bunches of them and, you know, it's not as easy as it is in other parts of the world, but china itself, if you buy the right types of things, it's growing latest report was 6.9%, it's a very vibrant economy. if you go to china, you sort of shake your head when you come out. things are changing so rapidly
6:27 am
and that's the nature of a country that's been the most rapidly growing transformative economy in world history over a a-year -- 30-year period. maria: made prediction that the company will continue to get more successful. they are really right now embarking in new capital raise for next two years, steve, my thanks for joining me. we will take a break. live from davos a lot more, allegations against lyft whether some employees abused customer data. honeywell reporting earnings before the bell this morning, we will have numbers before they hit the tape, back in a moment.

7:00 am
the optimism is really strong here and it's fueling markets. another all-time high yesterday. i half of a%. we are waiting on the first reading. that is due out in about an hour and a half. the markets are trading up ahead of the gdp. up to 72 points. the s&p 500 up a third of a%. in europe let's take a look at the indices one day after they say no move in into straits. thirty-five points higher. there up they are up almost 1%. in asia over night markets closed mostly higher with the exception of japan. up one and half% as you can see there.
7:01 am
they are among the big names. we are watching those numbers. the earnings are in line with the estimate. they were among the losers this morning. down 3%. we will tell you exactly what she said about running for office in 2020. the hilarious photoshop a fail. the first look at the opera barbie toy. first this, this hour. he is set to deliver an address to the attendees at the world economic forum in under an hour. blake burman is here with me. america is open for business that is one of the themes that you can expect to hear from president trump next hour as he addresses the world economic forum it will really be according to the white house a continuation of what
7:02 am
we have heard from the president. the present well also president will also take aim at trade calling for calling for it to be fair and reset reciprocal. expected to last in the area 50 to 20 minutes. to ratchet up the pressure and for the world as a whole to come together and fight against isis. the president gave this prediction here in davos here this morning. the united states is doing fantastically well. i think will be a great message and people are going to want to hear it. the president today has already met with the leader of rwanda. the president who also heads the african union. and the host country here.
7:03 am
he feels like this trip in davos will end up bringing billions and billions of dollars back into the u.s. and world leaders are also talking about the president and his latest. as president trump makes his arrival at the world economic forum. the state of relations between the u.s. and jordan. but many other countries although they expressed sympathy the support does not necessarily come through.
7:04 am
america being great again comes from america engaging with the rest of the world. the principles it represents a openness. of embracing different people. it's built on great ideas and talent. the success of any country i am looking forward to seeing how that united states will continue to be the authority and later in the world. what can you tell us about the meetings and everybody is excited to see firsthand what his ideas are and what his thoughts are. and how he can balance between making america great in his engagement with the rest of the world. in the role that the united
7:05 am
states will play with the other countries in the world. it will be interesting conversations to see how that will balance. isolationism is not an option anymore. the world is mobilizing whether we like it or not. how can we make it work. how can we address some of the flaws. there are so many social people are worried about the future of jobs. they're worried about technology about terrorism and migrants. these fears are not unfounded. if we don't address them happily they could make to fear and although fear can be irrational reaction it can invoke thoughts and behaviors.
7:06 am
>> there has been a lot of changes throughout the middle east. can you characterize the state of play today. you are right. there is still a lot of turmoil as you can see. we've seen a lot of recipes they have reduced countries like that. they seem to be taking a back stage now. i was born in the middle east of my life there. i know that's not with what
7:07 am
the arab people want or deserve. they are predominantly young. they want better. what would you want is jobs and opportunity. in a good education. they want to participate and have a say. they want a good life for their kids. i think it is time for us everybody is so frustrated with the violence in the conflict and it's time to have a new kind of dialogue both inside the middle east and towards the middle east. we measure success by closing the human dignity deficit. where we measure winning by the number of jobs created.
7:08 am
and not just by political influence. i think it's time for us to get off of the crisis and conflicts that we been on for a lifetime. i think the people are looking forward to that. we've seen how countries and whole economies are both there we have come a long way to feeding isis and i'm very happy about that but i don't necessarily feel much safer because the fertile ground of instability and hopelessness that breeds these kinds of groups. we are very happy that in the global counterterrorism work these kinds of groups can always regroup and reinvigorate.
7:09 am
as we are focusing on fighting the bad guys we need to be focusing on rebuilding and providing hope and empowering the good players in the middle east. they are trying to open their countries and reform other countries will look at. you had launched a new learning program. for example we launched a program and it's an on line learning platform. and now we are trying to expand it so that they can reach children all the way to kindergarten to grade 12. it would give the children even in yemen and syria a chance to catch up and had access to world-class learning. hopefully that would change the trajectory and tip the scales and you're talking
7:10 am
about people innocent young age. it's either one way or another. if we wait then we had generations of children who are growing up in darkness and less susceptible to extremist thought. it leaves the rest of us vulnerable. imagine what skin look like when these children come of age. and protect ourselves and make sure our future is a better place. do you feel like you got better in that regard. their ability to cause the havoc they've caused have has been undermined.
7:11 am
although they may be getting weaker and are part of the world we see them getting stronger in countries like africa. it is the ideology that needs to be defeated. we've talked about this in the past. what can you tell us in terms of the refugees. you wanted to make sure that there was proper housing and a proper place to answer this and have a solution to the refugee crisis. there are 65 million people who are displaced because of conflict and persecution. the countries that are least equipped to deal with this issue have to shoulder the majority of the problems. and jordan has have its fair share.
7:12 am
that has have a devastating impact on us because only 10% of them are in the camps. they have to share what little they have. we are spending one fifth of our budget to cover the cost of refugees. and many wealthy countries have walked away from their responsibility are thinks to at 8:00 a.m. eastern. we are breaking down the expectations right here life from dov us. -- davos. the media mogul now addressing

7:19 am
how idiotic is it that nancy pelosi is still referring to these bonuses as crumbs. the median household income in this country according to the latest sunset -- census data. those crumbs is a brand-new television set and then some. that is so deaf to the real play of the american people. we will see if they are actually force to go with those issues. the ceo of w pt we are taking your life to the speech we are also looking at colgate palm all of shares. down better than 3%. stay with us right here life.

7:22 am
even with insurance, we had to dip into our 401(k) so it set us back a little bit. sometimes you don't have a choice. but it doesn't mean you can't get back on track. great. yeah, great. i'd like to go back to bermuda. i hear it's nice. yeah, i'd like to see it. no judgment. just guidance. td ameritrade.
7:23 am
we had 30 minutes until president president trump and his big speech. the sales pitch to invest in america. i spoke with the ceo ahead of the marketing speech. and might this year's summit is a lot different than the past. going up vertically. at some point in time it will probably be correction.
7:24 am
worried about the impact of expansionary moves on whether that feeds through. as a businessman what you do when you look at this optimism and say is this 2006 or not. and then by the end of the year we have a massive financial upset in the housing crisis at some point in time. i think the question is when. the trump tax plan. and then we have a reduction of regulation. and then we have infrastructure spending probably coming in as well. that will be in an area the u.s. economy is strong. and people are very optimistic about it. as a businessman gift anticipate.
7:25 am
the u.s. it becomes more and more important as a result. asia, latin america. particularly in the british context. if the uk is going to be a mogul. it means that we have our trade patents that are confined in the u27. we have to shift the balance to the market. in an overall point of view as well. it will be interesting to see what they would say. we can probably see some more interest there. not necessarily a bad thing looking at tpt again. obviously with the balance and not necessarily in america's favor but a balance with
7:26 am
america whether they are being disadvantaged. i think they'll be stressing the impact of the tax cuts which the market was accepted -- expecting 25 percent. he was saying he was even more in favor than that. a 40% improvement. a must have a very significant impact in terms of workers so as long as it doesn't go i think it's purely into dividends and buybacks. at some point in time inflation will catch up and we will get inflation and then the question about the impact of central bank policy. that's where the rubber hits the road i think. we have midterm congressional's.
7:27 am
the question of reelection in 2020. when you look at it in the moment you would not bet against president trump. so unless they can come up with a really strong candidate. come november they will have to explain why they voted against it in the shutdown. let's talk about technology obviously converging for a long time here. in terms of money moving into the sector and how people will be viewing that. about 2 billion went into facebook. very strong in both channels. whether snap will become more and more important. what amazon is going to do. it has become a big surge phenomenon.
7:28 am
and their pain like $8 billion for content. and that is another battle. the decision he has become a major investor. and the facts of shareholders. in 20 to 25%. our second largest investment. we are investing about 3 billion in fox and disney. amazon is building its advertising platform. very small at the moment. we will be 300 million this year. growing very rapidly and as the advertising platform other ones apart from snap with verizon and microsoft that is another potential contender.
7:29 am
with that dominance comes responsibility. and the question as is i call them the seven sisters. and google and facebook and amazon. those seven are for $20 in market cap. those five american companies are the five most highly valued companies in the world and in our branding surveys the five most dominant brands. these are very powerful entities but with power becomes responsibility. the decisions that had to come down. does become more and more important. i think the european governments are looking much more closely at the power that the internet giants head.
7:30 am
it depends on where you look. intech yes. in healthcare the hmos. some of it is financial services area but in the package goods area there is great concern. the key to me and the problem around our industry is that we are increasingly recovering the cost. if to grow at the top line. two innovation and branding. those are the keys. if you're an automobile company. the key is about electrical vehicles and autonomous vehicles. i think that is a bit of a issue. the other thing that is happening as we see in the
7:31 am
west that tells you the difference in the mindsets. the local companies 50,000 people on the campus ali baba 15,000 people. it's 200,000 people. they are not stealing technology the in the global picture obviously but the local competition that is becoming more and more important. we are just about 30 minutes away from the president's speech. house minority leader is slamming companies that are giving wage increases to their employees.

[indiscernible]
7:36 am
despite the criticism of the world leaders are still eager to hear from president trump. take a look at this record. the s&p 500 was also stronger. take a look at futures of this morning and markets are on fire again. momentum continues as a dow industrial as a is up another 50 points. we had been up about a hundred earlier. that's a third of a%. we are waiting on the gdp number. it's due out in less than an hour. we will flash on the screen if the president is still in his speech. that's also driving the

7:38 am
first of the top story this half hour. at present trump is set to address in the world economic forum here. joining me right now as the wall street journal executive editor. what are you expecting from the president this morning. it sounds like he is going to give a variant of america first. we expect to be treated fairly but that does not mean that we are anti- trade or anti- global nest. i think he will give a little something to everybody. it seems like he will also going to take a victory lap for the american economy and say we are great place to invest. we want your business. were bringing america back. that kind of stuff. a number of attendees are planning to silently walk out of the president's speech. i don't understand this attitude about the president has been talking about america's open for business.
7:39 am
and we want to do business with all of these other nations and sharing it. with the other countries and those very people. i do understand what don't understand what these people are doing. offer not. when the u.s. does will it also helps the rest of the world. i think that's what's interesting about him being at this. as you know there is attention there. quietly many leaders will tell you i don't really like the rhetoric. all of the ceos you talk to cannot deny that they're happy with the tax bill. it's kind of how they are feeling. their attention for all of them. they have changed the business strategy. they were going to be investing in europe.
7:40 am
they are investing in the u.s. right now. two things that were interesting and that u.s. i have actually heard that sometimes there so much irritation with china here. china is tough. the u.s. it might help on that situation. i think the second thing that doesn't get enough regulation is the rollback. they had people from the white house saying what regulations might we undo. to create jobs. the ceo is certainly like that. i want to talk to about that as it relates to tech.
7:41 am
there can have to explain why they voted against the tax plan and why they sent it. here is the discussions that are going on in everyone's home. i will give away a little bit. here onset you know what we're talking about were talking about the tax cuts and the tax brackets and how it next week where we work people will seek more money in their paychecks. that is the discussion. every day in the past week. this is can impact more than 90% of american workers and their get a to seek more money in their paychecks. nancy pelosi can do miss -- dismissed the bonuses as much as she wants. it is a major mistake when you have them keeping more of their own money. that is what they are going to vote on.
7:42 am
what happened to armageddon. i am waiting for the plague of locusts again and they want to do grating up grinning off the cliff. there is no way that they can look at the tax reform and argue that. it's impossible. let's talk immigration for a second. they had put forward up potential past. in exchange for funding this is a new proposal. here is what senator elizabeth warren tweeted. they subjected 800,000 dreamers to deportation.
7:43 am
it is insulting. it is called the dream act. the white house democratic caucus issued this statement. this is not an immigration proposal it is a ransom note. i think the chain migration issue is probably really the deep one. there is already variance of the lot down there. the chain migration issue i think that's probably the biggest issue for them. i think it's clever by the president to do that because he can say i put forward a very bold plan i think it well. and the wall street journal editorial page has a really favorable trump immigration

8:23 am
>> highly accepted speech president trump giving it at the world economic forum, delivering his america first message, joining me once again, is the u.n.i global union general secretary with blake burman here phillip he started off talking about strides america has made went through tax plan, and the impact there, so that americans are going to see an increase in household income 4,000 dollars, then went to trade, talked about the america not going to have trade deals that are not fair, then went on to regulation, and ended up with security, talking about isis being on the run, wrapped up the speech with the again, the sfriedz that america made then thanks the audience thanked the world for their contributions your reaction. >> first off, this was a trickle down speech. in terms of expressing a hope that the economic growth and a stock market increase that we are seeing you want to go back to trump. president is still speaking
8:24 am
let's get back to that i'm sorry, pardon me. >> -- so this has been really great what you have done putting it together the economic forum. the tax reform was a lot of people over many years but they aren't able to get it had done many people tried, ronald reagan was really the last to make a meaningful cut in reform ours is cutting and reforming we emphasized cut but reform is probable almost as important. we want to do it. it is very tough politically to do it hard to believe, that would be but it is very, very tough that is why it has not been done in close to 40 years. and once we got it going, it was going and the big and i wouldn't say total surprise, but one of the big things that happened took place is at&t and some others came out very early and they said they were going to pay thousands and
8:25 am
thousands of dollars to people that work for their companies you have 300,000, 400,000, 500,000 people working for these companies. and all of a sudden it became like a big waterfall a beautiful waterfall where so many companies are doing it and even today just announced many more but every day they announced more and more, and now it is a fight for who is going to give the most started 1,000 now up to 3,000. this is something that we didn't anticipate. oftentimes in business, things happen that you don't anticipate. usually that is a bad thing. but this was a a good thing, this came out of nowhere. nobody ever thought of this as a possibility even. it wasn't in equation we waited we said wait till february 1 when the checks start coming in, and people klaus have a lot more in paycheck not just a little money this is a lot of money for people making a living doing whatever they may be
8:26 am
doing, and we really thought february about 1 was going to kick in -- february 1 kick in we haven't gotten there yet, it kicked in, it had incredible impact on the stock market, on the stock prices. we have set 84 records since my election, records that market prices meaning we hit new highs 84 different times, out of a one-year period, and that is a great thing in all fairness that was done before we passed the tax cuts and tax reform. so what happened is really something special, then as you know as i just said, apple came in with 350 billion dollars i tell you, i spoke with jim cook i side -- tim i will never consider this hole great run that we have made complete until you start building plants in u.s., i will tell you this move up substantially but when i heard 350, i thought he was talking
8:27 am
i thought they were talking 350 million dollars. and by the way, that is a nice side of plant not the greatest but not bad they said no, sir it is 350 billion dollars. i said that is something, well we have tremendous amounts of money including my newfound fends from last night great companies all investing one of the gentlemen said he is putting in two billion dollars, because of the tax cuts i said to myself, wow. he is actually the cheap one in the group accuse they are -- because they are putting in massive amounts billions of dollars a brand new united states a united states where people from all over the world are looking to come and invest, and this just nothing like what is happening, and i just want to finish by i have a group of people that have been so -- i have a whole lot of them i won't introduce
8:28 am
because -- at least half but i had a group of people that worked so hard on this other things, and we are really doing we had a great first year, so successful, and so many different ways, and as a tremendous spirit when you look at all of the different charts and polls you see, as an example, african-american unemployment at the historic low never had a period of time like this, same with hispanic, women at 17-year low. it is -- it is very heartwarming to see there is a tremendous spirit in the united states, i would say it is a spirit like i have never witnessed before, i have been here for a while i have never witnessed the spirit that our country has right now. so i just want to thank you all, and all of those that are pouring billions of dollars into our country or 10 dollars into our country we thank you very much thank you. >> mr. president i will ask
8:29 am
you maybe a personal question, but before doing so. >> sounds very interesting. >> i can only. >> i didn't know about this one. >> would i like to acknowledge the strong presence of your cabinet members. >> yes. >> who tremendously contributed to the discussions. >> i would like to do that that is very nice. >> now, steven. wilbur gary, robert, even my general and my various, other generals, making our military protection a little bit better for us too. so thank you very much, does everybody understand that, i think so. thank you all for being -- >> my maybe personal question would be what experience from your past has been most useful in being fairly new pockets.
8:30 am
>> being a businessman has been great experience i loved it had always loved business always been good billed things i have always been very successful at making money, buy things that would be failures turn them around try to get them right price make them successful i have been good at that takes a certain ability. you know, historically i guess there has never really been a businessman or businessperson elected president so always a general or a politicians. throughout history also a been a general or you had to be a general but mostly was politicians you never have a businessman, then in fairness i was saying to klaus, last night, had the opposing party to me won, some of whom you backed, some of the people in the room, instead of being up almost 50% the stock market is up since my election almost 50%, rather than that i believe the stock market from
8:31 am
that level the initial level would have been down close to 50% that is where we were at i really believe that they were going to put massive new regulations you couldn't breathe there was choking our country to death, and i was able to see that klaus as a businessperson. the other thing is i have always seemed to get for whatever reason a disproportionate amount of press media throughout whole life. somebody will explain some day why i have always gotten a lot. and as a businessman i was treated real well by press numbers speak things happen but i always had a very good press, and it wasn't until i became a politician that i realized how nasty owe maintain how vicious and how fake the press can be, as cameras start going off in the back there but the bottom line somebody said couldn't have been that bad here we are the president, i think we are
8:32 am
doing a really great job with my team i have a team of just tremendous people. and i think we are doing a very special job, and i really believe it was time and was time to do that job because i don't think the united states would have done very well, if it went through four or eight more years of regulation and really a very antibusiness group of people. we have a very pro business group. we have regulations cut to a level in history of our country, klaus, this was reported recently in one year, we've cut more regulations in my administration than any other administration in four, eight or 16 years in one case. we cut more regulations in one year an we have a ways to go i mean we have probably 50% and we're going to have regulation. there is nothing wrong with rules and regulations you need them, but we've cut more than any administration ever in the
8:33 am
history of our country, and we still have a ways to go. so i think between that and the tremendous tax cuts, we have really done something one other thing i said i saw it last night with some of the leaders and the businesspeople, i think i have been a cheerleader for our country. and he everybody representing a company or a country, has to be a clear leader, or no matter what you do it is just as not going to work. and the reason i am a clear leader is because it is easy, because i love our country, and i think we are just doing really well, and we look forward to seeing you in america, special place, and where you are is a special place also, thank you all very much i appreciate it. . >> thank you. thank you very much. mr. president. for being with us -- community
8:34 am
assembled here i quote from you last piece of remarks will be -- hardworking man and women who do their duty each and every day making this world a better place for everyone. thank you very much. >> thank you very much everybody thank you. . [applause] maria: president trump -- president trump just ending the inventory with head of the world economic forum took questions at forum i am back you with you ununi global union secretary blake burman. >> blake your thoughts here. >> it is a speech the president has given all across the united states, they want to continue talking about their successes stock market tax cuts down the line the difference did this before the
8:35 am
world, hadn't don this in western pa last week or two weeks ago, i will tell you this, the white house official told me that they went back out and looking about at obamacare when obamacare was passed president obama had only went out and saying obamacare praises four times the lesson they have learned white house learned even though they think obamacare horrible policy to begin you you need to continue to sell, sell, sell sell sell you will see the president do this, all across the united states, in the upcoming months what you just saw here right now in davos is him pitch success story administration thinks they have. >> seeing success obamacare has been a a deficdevastate for cost more than they thought you have been voice of labor movement in europe your thoughts to president trump's speech. >> my thoughts, that -- that we're still seeing this fixation on trickle down if you fix the stock market --
8:36 am
you fix everything else. america has got wonderful opportunity now, economic growth is up, we have a situation crisis therefore, an opportunity he made a ximent that he was going to commitment to take care of man and woman who he we want to see when talk about a bonfire to all regulations, can't -- just as you can secretary of labor say can you stop what you are doing overtime stop what you are doing with respect to to trying to take tips away from wait retrogreces stops nonsense lifting health safety regulations if really series about helping men and women of america could be stopped secondly on investment i got --
8:37 am
>> rolling back regulations, has been incredible positive for the economy, that is probably the most significant thing, 3 1/2% growth. >> united states of america, invests 0.01% in active labor market policies. they are -- in developed countries developing countries. talking about that man and woman who has been forgotten by the obama administration, and the clinton
8:38 am
administration, your take. >> coming back. >> the thing during election was that it was very union members in the midwest that came out and voted for president trump. and herei lines a messaging problem when someone like phillip talks about workers the working man working woman the only good job to him is a union job, where you collect dues, funnel that to political campaign to politicians, that is why that message doesn't resonate with people here is 2 condition nancy pelosi doesn't inma resonate that thousands three million plus people getting from employers just crumbs just crumbs. >> 1 thousand dollars, i 10 tanks of gas new television
8:39 am
set or laptop 1 thousand dollars potentially in this country, feeds family of four nearly a month, that is what a thousand dollars is to average american. >> not to mention that they doubled the deduction in tax plan lowered taxes 90% americans how do you not like this maria bartiromo, dagen spend a day in my shoes, and you come spend a day in union organizer's shoes, and see what the realities for american workering men and women are. stop this unconscious sens about demonizing trade union movement stop it just shows your ignorance of what it is we do, and how we tried to loyalist all the boets in tboat dagen: asking american workers don't belong to unions happy in jobs. >> may be they are happy don't want a ipo talkiunion -- why te people who he you are voting
8:40 am
for. >> give us a fair opportunity, to organize workers we will treble the membership we don't get a fair chance in workplace billions opponent each year ensuring workers can come together organize, it is vicious, it is evil it is i antidemocratic against human rights of people. in the time of the fair deal america came to a settlement would live all boats the situation at the moment not there i have to say 80% of american workforce lives paycheck to paycheck. >> donald trump got elected that is exactly why donald trump got elected. >> made. maria: he was the candidate talking about that person living from paycheck to paycheck. >> promises what he was going to do for working men and women of the current he have a is doing make it weaker for men and women working, at work, to actually do something about their -- their situation, look. maria: not true that is not true you look at tax plan. >> there are 40 million people
8:41 am
living in poverty in america. maria: that is exactly what that is why he doubled the deduction. >> dagen mcdowell what other issues addressed why he doubled deduction 24,000 dollars no tax. >> 62% of this tax cut will go to top 1%. >>. maria: that is absolutely not true i cannot have you spew lies on this program, that is no the true, everybody got a tax cut. and there are the rich that are actually facing higher taxes those who are losing their salt deduction those are people who are finding higher taxes, the majority of americans are seeing a tax cut go ahead jump in. dagen: more than 0%. >> my -- 8 o%. >> the joint committee on taxation said more than 80% americans are getting a tax tax cut, more than 90% of workers in this country, next month are going to see higher paychecks. that is a fact. maria: right, right.

8:45 am
. >> the world witnessing the resurgence of a strong prosperous america i am here to deliver a simple message there mass never been a better time to hire to build to invest an to grow in the united states. america is open for business and we are competitive once again. maria: all right, that was president trump, speaking at world economic forum in davos a few minutes ago, we get reaction to president trump's speech want to bring in wilbur ross good to see you -- >> good to see you.
8:46 am
>> we have been debating the president's policies, and, obviously, we are seeing an impact on the economy, and on wages, your take on what you just heard from the president, as well as that pushback, from phillip jennings. >> i thought the president's speech was remarkable was measured covers all the issues made totally clear his policies on everything. he made clear america first, but not america alone that is a big important statement made clear free trade but fair and reciprocal trade. made clear he believes in international order welcoming everybody into it. i thought it was a very, very powerful speech. maria: it was interesting, because the president really was elected largely because of the forgotten man and woman out there yet, you know we heard a moment ago, that these people are living pay collect to paycheck actually not addressing that, but i think that that is exactly what he was trying to address.
8:47 am
>> not only trying he succeed. >> exactly. >> 2.6 million americans have gotten at least a thousand dollars check from employer saying specifically it was because of the tax cuts. that is before and without reference to the reduction with holding will start showing up in february. >> but i think what is happening, the extreme left including mr. jennings you had on before, they ran out of facts now they are trying fiction eventually, facts will overwhelm fiction. >> i think a good point because i think that the democrats are going to have to explain why they voted against the tax plan from november in midmaterials mid terms why government shut down government. >> a clever bit of language to convince somebody who got more money in his or her pocket at that point in time was bad thing. >> president talked about
8:48 am
strides american made went through trade policies what he is expecting, what is your take, on this whole comment that he is willing to listen on tpp willing to do deals with tpp if deal changes that is -- >> the reason the president withdrew from tp3 was not that he didn't want to do business with those other countries, he with drew because the terms on when they wander to do business were not adequate there is a big difference between turning down a deal, and turning down the other parties. >> president also talked about regulation. basically saying for every one regulation, that is there we are cutting 22 of them, another issue. >> so far, yes. >> another issue but jennings had a problem with . >> i don't think overregulation helps anyone. not anybody not a businessperson not a worker. >> of a i would argue probably single biggest impact to economic growth. >> sure, i think what really
8:49 am
